      "Functional"”
      The rooms themselves are awful, maybe what you would expect from a low-end hostel. However, the shared bathroom was new and surprisingly nice. If you are looking to save money and not spending much time at all in the hotel, it could be worth it for the savings against the hotels located more centrally.

      Meh. ”
      While I know it's a hostel, the staff was incredibly disorganized and originally put us in a dirty room. A/C in unit didn't work (was it supposed to?) and just felt dirty. Also, they came to kick us out of our room 5 minutes before check out time. Calm down lady, we're on our way out! Maybe I've just gotten too old for hostels. But the shared bathrooms were VERY nice!

      Acceptable”
      This is was the worst hotel I have ever stayed, I booked months in advance and they didn't have our reservations when we arrived. Our room was dirty and there was no aircon and it's was BOILING in Boston, I didn't sleep for 3 nights straight due to the heat and noise from the street. The elevators were broken and the staff were the rudest people I have ever met, if you need a questioned answered or something placed in the communal fridge it was like you were asking them for the soul of their first born child. Don't even get me started on the communal bathrooms, cold showers which were needed as the bathrooms were like saunas, you walked out of the shower dirty again. We considered moving hotels everyday we were there. You get what you pay for. SHIT. Do NOT stay at this hotel. (Please note I am not picky with accomodation, I happily stay in hostels regularly)

      40 Berkeley is like a hostel with individual rooms, which are furnished in a spartan fashion rather like a college dorm. Bathrooms are not in the rooms, but each floor has a collection of private bathrooms -- spotless and beautifully appointed (no exaggeration!) WiFi was fine, no air conditioning, no TV, thin bedding. The staff was friendly and effective; I had arrived in the afternoon from an international flight, and so wanted to nap, but some long-stay tenants were chatting and frolicking in the hall. The staff quieted them down and I could sleep. My requirement was a place to crash in Boston on my way home; 40Berkeley fulfilled that requirement admirably. I've stayed there before, would stay again, and would recommend it.

      worst and never will come back!!!”
      They charged me double and acted innocent. Especially the latino guy, whobwas the one charging me double. When we told him "you charge us double" his face turned out to be "BUSTED" then he returned our money. Even though we stayed for 5 nights, They didnt clean our room, not even once. The room was like a cell in a jail, there was nothing in the room except 2 bunk beds and a tiny wardrobe. The bunk bed was so short, we bumped our heads quite often. Everything mentioned in the website was only the lobby and bathroom, the picture of the room in the website didnt match at all with the reality. To make things worse, they have no working AC . Well, the website doesnt lie..they have ac in the room but none of the ac is working, they switch off the ac and told us to open the window for some cold air. We were like "WHAT!Are you kidding me?" Moreover, when i asked for clean towels, the latino guy gave us DOORMAT instead of the towels we're looking for.I Would NEVER recommend this place to any1

      Location is nice, just 5 min walk from Back Bay station. Common shower/bath room is clean enough and well maintained. But surprised to know that there is no electric outlet in the room at all ! I had to charge my phone and PC at the lobby or library in the city.

      There was no internet in two days. Staffs are not so cooperative. It was really hot at night. Literally impossible to sleep at night without aircondition. It was very noisy outside, specially from the cars of the streets. No room service in two days. Wash rooms were not so clean. There was no soap or shampoo in the washroom. In a word it was terrible.

      location, location, location
      This place puts you in a great location to access all of Boston's fantastic tourist sites but the hotel I feel suffers from a few things - the staff are hit and miss, bathrooms are in desperate need of a facelift, during summer some air con in the rooms would really help, Berkeley St is incredibly noisy all night and all morning so don't bank on a good nights sleep if you're on that side and the place as a whole is suffering an identity crisis...are you a hotel, hostel, hospital or permanent accommodation?
